We need your reviews, just like in previous years, of Coldplay's yearly summary. This time, we are making a 'Ghost Stories review'. Pretty much the same as twelve months of Coldplay but 2014 was the year for celebrating Coldplay's sixth and slightly more downsized album! You can include non Ghost Stories stuff too such as A Head Full Of Dreams announcement at the end of the year, just most of what's come out this year has been Ghost Stories / GS live show related.

Format is the same too, so we'll start off in January and review every month until the end of December. Then i'll be looking to do some interviews and polls for a final article after everything and that will cap off the beautiful era nicely :)

Alright, so we need you to write the articles. Have a look at 2013's reviews if you need a guide on how to format it and what sort of content to include.

For each month, you can get the content from the Coldplaying.com archives : http://www.coldplaying.com/2014/01/ Replace the 01 at the end with 02 for Feb, 03 for March, so on... For quieter months, if you want to find more content, you can go through the pages on the Coldplay / Ghost Stories forum.

When you write an article, simple just make a new thread in this sub forum and post and save it in a word processor/google docs if you're not writing in one go. I will post/present it on the main site too once it's done.

A fair bit happened in December (AHFOD, Munich, Miracles, BBC R2 Show, BBC Music Awards, NRJ and Grammy Nominations) and since that's fresh in my mind, I'll be happy to take that?

I'll add you :) I'll remove the 'deadline dates' as they've gone out of the window, it takes a lot of time to make these! Almost half way through :D

I've also never done one of these things before, is it just an album review of GS?

To when does it need to be done? I must have ample time to prepare my master-piece!

Okay. I'll begin working on it Monday. I'm a bit swamped this weekend with college
